HS2 Rolling Stock Industry Event
HS2 Ltd is organising an industry event on 27th March for companies interested in supporting the rolling stock project. The event will present a great opportunity to find out more about the project, bidding requirements and process, as well as to network with other suppliers. We are seeking to attract ambitious, innovative and creative suppliers of all sizes and types, including those who have not necessarily worked in rail before.
• The event is to take place on the afternoon of Monday 27th March 2017, in London.
• We invite you to register your interest before 17th February at: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/HS2RollingStockIndustryEvent/.
• Registrations are limited to 2 representatives per organisation.
The advertisement of this event corresponds with the recent release of a rolling stock PIN, which is available via the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and Tenders Electronic Daily (TED), as supplement to the OJEU. A link is also provided on HS2’s Contract Opportunities Table.
The rolling stock procurement will secure Britain’s first ever high-speed trains capable of transporting passengers at speeds of up to 225mph on the new HS2 route, initially between London and Birmingham. The trains will also continue onto the conventional rail network to serve cities such as Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and Glasgow. Providing a world-class passenger experience is at the heart of the requirements for companies interested in bidding for the £2.75bn contract.
